Jackson • O’Neill offers sound advice to help clients during highly emotional times.
The most common issues that are present in most divorce cases are child custody, monetary child support and the division of personal items. Family court cases can be some of the most complex types of cases because they incorporate different areas that many people are not familiar with such as the division of real estate, tax implications, retirement accounts and pensions. These are just some of the secondary issues that have to be addressed in order to make a divorce final. The law firm of Jackson O’Neill is equipped to handle these complex issues and will explain them to you and take some of the anxiety out of the divorce process.
There are other areas of the Family Court practice that Jackson• O’Neill, LLC have represented clients in the past that can impact you both legally and emotionally as much as a divorce does. Domestic restraining orders for example can lead to a change in child custody and a restraint on your ability to see your children. A former spouse will often try to modify the final decree of a divorce once it is final to his or her benefit. You should always consult with an attorney for any type of these cases, and we can help.
We know that there is a certain emotional toll that is taken when a divorce is filed or a child custody battle is underway. We will make the process of navigating through Family Court as smooth and stress free as possible and all attempts to resolve the cases before trial will be made.
When the time comes to fight for you and to be your advocate, we will ensure that your voice is heard and you have your day in court.
